Hi, this may help you to understand the problem, but I have not read it all, so don't know if it will enable you to do anything about it ...

First, try getting rid of son and his xbox or charge him by the hour for using Your b'band, if he doesn't have earnings or pocket money deduct it from the food that you would have bought for him :-)
Secondly even though the pc's are on-line, I wouldn't have expected them to use bandwidth unless they are down or up-loading data. If you switch 2 off, does your speed increase? I have 2 pc's and I don't notice a speed decrease.
